I bought the book "Glock-The Rise of America's Gun". I am almost done reading the book, but there was a chapter that actually has been stuck in my mind. One of the chapters mentions how Gaston Glock thought of the Americans as stupid and thought of himself better than them. I have tried to Google this and find something that can contradict this, but as of yet, I can't find anything. While there is no denying that Gaston Glock created an awesome weapon & he had awesome foresight, his arrogant attitude really pissed me off. Yes, the LEO's, NATO & military purchased his guns from all over the world, but the real bread & butter was selling to the regular citizens of the US. I realize that Smith & Wesson was falling behind & they did get knocked down BUT they have gotten back up, dusted themselves off and the M&P line is giving Glock a serious run for their money. I look at it like Honda/Toyota vs The Big 3--the Big 3 are making a huge comeback with automobiles and posting awesome sales. Anyone else read this book & feel this way? I learned on a Glock, I think it is an awesome pistol but it isn't the only pistol out there. I love M&P's, but choose the Glock because of the preban option. I am almost ready to give up the prebans and go back to M&P. I drive Chevy's, maybe it's time I switch to shooting M&P's. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
